    We have nothing bad to say about this hostel. Firstly, love the layout - it is cosy yet sociable which enables solo travellers (and ourselves) to make friends. It is in a perfect location and has a lovely garden area. To top things off, my boyfriend left his glasses there and the owner went out of his way to send them in a taxi to Mostar (our next destination) because we still had some time left in our trip and he couldn’t afford to make do without. Thank you Balkan Han Hostel❤️

    Overall had such a great stay here! We only stayed for one night but the staff were super friendly and helpful , we had to leave before reception opened and forgot to tell them and left our bags in our room and they were super accomodating and just let us come and grab them whenever. Didn’t get much of the vibe there as we didn’t hang out at the hostel but all the guests were super friendly from what we saw. The only thing I’d note is that the bathrooms could do with a little upgrade!

    Street is noisy, as aforementioned. Good common area for meeting people, if a little tight in the kitchen. The bathroom was adequate (kind of awkward set up), but things seemed clean! My only issue is that we had an emergency with an injured guest and I was scolded for calling an ambulance during the panic, not the owner. Bit of an odd place, could’ve been the season, but it’s got what you need for your travels in Bosnia.

    I got to witness what my travel guidebook described as the 'famous Balkan temper' as the owner of the hostel forcibly removed two fellow travelers who needed to use the wifi for a few minutes to get situated in the city. After that, I met great people at the hostel. Social atmosphere. Facilities were a little cramped and dirty but overall OK. Street noise is a factor as other reviewers noted.

    I was planning on staying for several weeks in Sarajevo, but it will not be at the Balkan Han hostel. The owner personally insulted me. I was not happy with anything about the hostel except for the atmosphere because there were several cool people there.
